Thanks BestWeekEverTV

From Best Week Ever TV: Bono was seen partying with two teenage girls in Saint Tropez. He says it was just part of his anti-poverty campaign…look at these children! They’re so poor they have to wear mis-matched crystal-encrusted bikinis!

From ME (Fan who spent thousands following him around the country): Um, Bono - don't you have an album to finish and a tour to plan? Because some of your loyal fans have been waiting FOUR years for a follow up. Giddy up, bitch!

Make Up Minds!

So I was just reading an article at about the stock market slumping after oil prices dipped below $50 a barrel. I'm still asking myself why we are paying $2.40 a gallon here in good ol' Buffalo, NY when the national average is well below that, but I digress. Anyway, the article included this text:

"Crude briefly dipped to $49.91 in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange Thursday before settling just above $50. The industry fears the economic slowdown will drastically curb demand for oil."

OK, WTF? When I was paying $4.30 for gas this past summer, everyone was hot under the collar saying we needed to curb our usage and cut back. Remember the warnings that the people in the US were using too much, we were too dependent, we needed smaller cars. Yet now that it's down to $50 a barrell you fear the economic climate will "curb" demand. Isn't that what they WANTED?

Make up minds people, make up minds!!!!!!!!!

On a side note, why am I still paying the same fuel surcharge ($4.95) to have the waterman bring the water to my house when he's paying roughly 1/2 of what he used to for gas. Hmm? Hmm?? Answer that waterman!!!!!

In any case, I hope you now understand why I stick to reading entertainment news at MSNBC, I don't get nearly as worked up. Owait, I forgot about Brad and Angelina. I take it back. I just have to stop reading.

Trick or Treat (Or Beans)

So what did YOU give out for Halloween? If you're like most people, you went to the Tops/Wegmans/Rite Aid/K-Mart/Walmart/Walgreens to pick up some candy. The Snickers, the Milky Way, the Kit Kat, the Reese cups, the M&Ms. If you were trying to cut back, you got the Child's Play mix of Dum Dums, Nerds, Laffy Taffy. The stuff my kids love.

First, let me preface this posting by saying that I'm not complaining. Frankly, I'm scratching my head. I understand that the economy is bad, things are tight and people are pinching pennies. But I've seen the prices on candy - it's pretty cheap. And the people in our neighborhood got it easy, because we hardly got any trick or treaters. I used two bags, and I was giving 2-3 to each kid. So I think you could spend, say, 4 bucks and give out to everyone who came to your door. But if you didn't want to spend that much, what could you do? You could say, run to a store in Mexico. Or you could give out something around the house? Something you don't like, or something you have lots of. So that is exactly what you do! See the exhibits below which my kiddies got when Trick or Treating last Friday.

Exhibit A, a piece of hard candy. Notice the graphic? Since it's small, I'll tell you what it is. That's a little green man with both arms in the air and an Ax hanging out of his head. Note the name on this candy. Espanto. Have you ever seen such a thing at the Walgreens? How about the Wegmans? How about the candy store next to the Hispanos Unidos? I thought so!

Let us move on now to Exhibit B. Wow - this looks PRICEY! Those Ghiardelli Squares are Delicious! You can buy them at a normal store, like Tops, and they have carmel and peanut butter and chocolate goo in the center. Owait, this one isn't filled. This one is just chocolate. Dark Chocolate. 60 percent dark chocolate? Evening Dream? Huh? Am I HAVING a dream? Cause my 9 year-old isn't a huge fan of dark chocolate, and I don't know many 9 year-olds that are. Also, I'm fairly certain that you can't win a kid over with 60 percent "cacao" (as this is labeled) when their favorite candy is the Skittles.

On a side note, in case you were wondering, cacao is otherwise known as "The cocoa plant," but I don't think cocoa sounded fancy enough for this shit. On another side note, I learned that these pieces of crap were passed out at the Taste of Buffalo and they let you take handfuls. So my theory that they bought them but didn't like them went out the window. They just took a jackload for free and then when they realized they tasted like ass, they gave them out.

Moving on to the most peculiar item placed into the Halloween sacks. This is the very first item my hubby pulled out of the bag to show me. The story goes like this. The kids knocked on the door, said Trick or Treat and a woman in her 30s came to the door. She told the kids "hold on," then disappeared for about 2 full minutes. The kids waited, dootie do. The woman came back and gave them the items in the photo below. Please click to enlarge.

Yes, you are looking at Ziploc Bags full of beans. They are small and brownish in color, about the size of split peas, but are not split, they are smooth on both sides. Jessica thought they were rabbit food. I told her "I think they are beans." Duncan said "I don't like beans." If you hold up the bags you can see that the bag Jessica was given was half full, but the bag Duncan got was only 1/4 full. I told Duncan that the woman must not have liked him and he said "but I don't even like beans!" As determined earlier.

Here's my question. Pretend you weren't ready for Halloween, but your light was on and you came to the door and there were two trick or treaters and you had no candy. Then you realized you had no pennies or nickels to give and you thought a dime or quarter was too much. Which of the following would give?

1. A juice box or can of pop
2. A Toothbrush
3. A Pen
4. A Pencil
5. A can of corn
6. A ziploc bag of small beans.

I don't know about you, but where I'm from you can't eat anything that's already been opened. So those beans are out and have to go into the trash. But not until I show everyone, and I mean, everyone that I will see in the next few weeks. Cause man, this is the stuff blog postings are made of.

The beans are curently on my dining room table and will be on a traveling road show tomorrow to my work, then to the polls. After that, their journey will continue until they live down in infamy. But they are already famous in my house. This will forever be known as the Halloween of the Beans. 2008. A great year.

You Do the Math

Yo - you seen this? This article that tells about how Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt donated $2 million to fund a children's health center in Ethiopia? Hollah! Thanks for the support say the Africans. And let's get on the case, cause everyone wants to know about the Jolie-Pitts says Us Weekly. Not Lori though. Lori says "huh?"

Cause Lori remembers a few months back when the pictures of the newborn Christ Children were in People Magazine. Didn't those two get like $14 million dollars for pics of the Wonder Twins that fell out of Jolie's crotch a few months back? Where did that money go? Cause if I'm doing my math, we're missing about $12 million. Did they give that away without Us reporting it? Puh-Lease, bite your tongue. Angelina Jolie could buy a bag of tater tots and a 12 pack of Cream Ale and they'd be fighting for the scoop!

Can I ask something? Why is everyone making such a big deal about Charlie Sheen having another baby? I've seen it on Extra, in Us, on the internet - and at Winster they keep showing the same clip over and over while I'm playing my online slots. Dude, the guy will put it up in any chick he sees walking by, and he's been married, what, three times? And been a client to Heidi Fleiss and her "services." It's not brain science people, you put your penis in that many different woman enough, you're bound to end up making at least a couple of them pregnant.

Can't we go back to talking about Brad and Angelina? It's been at least three days since I've seen any mention of Pax and Maddox, come on, do you want me to go into withdrawl? I need more pics of those kids walking around looking all glassy eyed whilst each eating from their very own 'Big Grab' bags of Cheetos....

I Can't Say Typical, Can I?

I read the Business First update each day, and every few days they ask a new question, which you can answer and comment on. Today's question is "Where do you do your grocery shopping?" followed by a list of selections, Tops, Wegmans, Aldi, Save-A-Lot, etc.

Someone wrote this comment:

"I don't know.. I open the fridge and there's food in there. I suspect my wife is involved somehow."

Am I allowed to say typical?

Although I'm still LOL!

A few comments down from that was:

"For their professionalism and how they treat their employees and customers, Wegmans is unsurpassed. Tops is at the opposite end of this spectrum. Their employees can be surly and their customer service lacking."

SURLY - I love it!!!!!

Even better:

"... Top's never mops, just look at the floor ... Jingle from the '80's. Top's has always pissed me off. The layout, the prices, but mostly the people."

Always So Good, for So Little

So tonight was exciting as we journeyed to Swiss Chalet for dinner. The very nice waitress bought us a BIG plate of sauces to go around, three chalets and TWO barbecue sauces (pay attention to this part.) Very nice of her since I was the only one who needed it for my ribs, Paul got just chicken. So I ate some, and told her "oh, I didn't even use this one, do you take it back?" She said no because once it leaves the kitchen, it's considered TAINTED. Well she didn't say those words exactly, but I got the drift. Anyway, we were almost done eating when I noticed that my coupon for $4 off was missing, so we started lifting up all the plates to look for it. No luck. So Paul lifts up the SAUCE PLATE and all of a sudden time stands still as the spare BBQ sauce falls over. Slowly you could see the silouette of the cup as it fell over and you hear "nooooooo." OK maybe that was in my head. But the next part wasn't. The sauce goes all over, landing on the table, the floor, and oh, my capris. And it's hot too, cause they warm that shit up. WTF I say, WTF! I tried wiping it up but of course it's just smearing all over the place. Plus it's all soaked into the jean material and it's cooling down, fast! We had to call the waitress over cause you just know some idiot would step into it, fall and sue. Normally I'd blame it on the kids, but they were nowhere near that sauce, so I did the only thing I could, told them it was HIS fault! As we left I did the walk of shame, holding my purse a little lower as to cover the stain. But we had one more stop to make - the pilgrimage to Hollywood Video. With the giant sauce stain (it was like three inches wide!) So we're walking around the store (purse still covering stain) and Jessica breaks out with "Oh Mommy, your pants smell gooooood."

On a side note, I think they put some sort of drug like crack in that sauce. It's so freaking good, those were some of the best ribs I ever ate. Unfortunately I'll always associate it with "the day of the sauce mess."

He'll be hearing about this for DAYS!

Sum Ting Wong

WTF. Seriously. WTF

So here is probably the most disturbing story of the month - maybe the year. A man stabbed his seatmate on a Greyhound Bus, then went on to decapitate him. As you would expect people ran off the bus, so he just went about cutting the body into pieces. You can read all about it here.

I believe the most disturbing part of the story was this:

"As the three guarded the door with a crow bar and a hammer, the attacker went back to the body and calmly came to the front of the bus to show off the head."

Calmly came to the front of the bus to show off the head? WTF? Seriously - WTF.

The article noted that passengers were watching the Legend of Zorro when the incident occured. I don't think that is what spurred him. I think it was boredom as he was forced to stare at the Canadian countryside for hours on end.

Yo Ho

Sophia: Jealousy is a very ugly thing, Dorothy! And so are you, in anything backless.

Sophia: When I turn my hearing-aid up to ten, I can hear a canary break wind in Lauderdale!

Sophia: Cabbage she serves me, in ten minutes I could be sky writing!

Blanche: Is it okay to sleep with a man on the first date?
Sophia: It's a sin. I don't care what anyone says, it's a sin. But I'd go back to eating fish on Fridays if his holiness gave that one the green light.

Rose: Sooo, who's the luckiest girl in the history of the world!
Sophia: Well, it wasn't your mother.

Sophia: Blanche, a terrible thing has happened to you. But when life does something like this, there are a couple of things you got to remember. You got your health, right?
Blanche: Yeah.
Sophia: You can still walk, can't you?
Blanche: That's true.
Sophia: Great, go get me a glass of water.

Blanche: Dorothy, do you think I'm dressed okay for the dog races?
Sophia: That depends – are you competing?

Sophia: Rose, I found my lucky handkerchief.
Rose: Where was it?
Sophia: It was in my bra.Rose: What was it doing in your BRA?!
Sophia: It was blowing my breasts, Rose!

Blanche: Listen, did you hear that sound?
Sophia: Yeah, and as long as I'm in my own bed I'll do what I want.

Sophia: Look, Rose, God doesn't make mistakes. We were all put on this planet for a purpose. Blanche, you're here to work in a museum, so that art can be appreciated by humanity. Dorothy, you're here as a substitute teacher to educate our youth. And Rose, you're here because the rhythm method was very popular in the twenties.

Rose: Sophia, is that a Captain Jack's Seafood Shandee uniform you're wearing?
Sophia: No, Rose. I'm off to discover the Straits of Magellan. Yo ho!

From the very beginning of the season I was a fan. Yes, a fan of The Food Networks "Next Food Network Star." It aired on Sunday nights at 10 p.m. and you all know how I hate watching shows that late cause when I stay up past 11, well let's just say the next day isn't so nice. In any case, I watched it all this season, didn't miss an episode. No one was really standing out for me but after awhile I started to like Kelsey and Shane. Then they got das boot and I thought OK Lisa has this in the bag cause that Adam can't cook, can't handle himself in front of the camera and can't stop joking around. And Aaron, don't get me started, what's his last name again? Cause it sounds like McCartel, but sometimes it sounds like McCargle. Take the marbles out buddy!

So last night was the big finale, and they each had to do a sample show which they showed a few minutes of at the end. I thought Lisa nailed it. Aaron, what the hell were you making cause I sure couldn't understand it. Take the marbles out buddy! Adam did OK, but who needs that much goofiness in the kitchen. I tell you why I watch the Food Network. To make fun of the people. I watch Barefoot Contessa and I make fun of how she says Endive and how rich she is and how she won't let Jeffrey buy a boat. I watch Paula Deen to see how much butter she's going to put in a dish and watch her treat her youngest son like the slowest little pup in the litter. And I watch Giada DeLaurentis so I can make fun of her hooters hanging into her panchetta and hear her explain how everything she cooks gets a "nice golden crust." I like to make that fun on my OWN, I don't want my Food Network star doing it for me. So Adam, I'm sorry, you're out. My money is on Lisa and I'm a betting woman.

Well color me unhappy, cause they go into discussions (Bobby, girl who never combs her hair and man who looks older than he is) and they are like "you know they all bring good qualities, but which one of them could start doing their own show next week." 'Lisa' I scream over to Paul, followed by 'these people are stupid!' Or maybe that was in my head. So they bust out and they're like "Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of the Next Food Network Star is....."

Aaron Mc(something) Jr.

Me: "WTF???"

I still don't know what his actual name is. I had to look it up on the Food Network website.

It's Aaron McCARGO, Jr.

You know, like "I'm going to move this McCargo to my McBedroom." Well, you would talk like that if you were Ronald McDonald.

Anyway, WTF???? I'm thinking McCargo will last about as long as the LAST Food Network star did, and I know you can't count the number of times you saw "The Gourmet Next Door" on more than one hand, cause that shit ran twice...

In other news, yesterday I started watching that Tori and Dean, Home Sweet Hollywood. I see why it's doing well, they are both very open and it's fun to watch. I do however feel like writing her a letter pleading her to patch things up with her mother. I have no idea what their falling out was about but I think it's sad that they both have such hard feelings. One day her mom won't be around and then she'll wish she had reached out (at least I think so.)

In other news, what's with Tori's hooters?? Couldn't she get those bitches fixed? I certainly watch those 90210 reruns enough, she must be making money for them being in syndication. I would think my ad dollars would cover a touch up...

Cutest. Picture. EVER!

Total WTF Moment

I was watching the TeeVee this morning and they were showing a news story about some moron (complete moron) who got arrested for a DWI and while he was sitting at the police station, drank WHITE-OUT to cover up the alcohol on his breath.

Dude, WTF???

The police noticed it after seeing white out on his hands. How come they didn't see it in his mouth, on his tongue and on the sides of his lips. I'm guessing that doesn't go down as smooth as a brewsky would.

Did Ya'll Hear?

Have you all heard about how I won two tickets AND backstage passes to...drum roll please...

Gordon Lightfoot.


Yes, I called 96.1 a few weekends back and won two passes to a wine tasting and was entered to win the grand prize of the "Lightfoot Tickets." I said "Oh, OK great," thinking "yeah, that ain't happening, they'll surely give it to someone who sounds like a fan (AKA someone who is 70, like him.) But no such luck, they gave them to me. Now I feel guilty for having them because there are actual people out there who like this dude and I know two, yes, two of his songs!

This is the fun part. When I told my mom I won this prize (thinking maybe she'd want to go) she said "Oh, Lori you should be more careful about things you call in to win, you should save up and be more selective when you call so you can try to win airline tickets or money." As if I know when I'm going to be caller 9 or 12 depending on the contest. I've been trying to qualify for the Summer of Variety for two months now. Stupid addictive radio contests!

Speaking of radio, I've been listening to Star 102.5 a lot lately. Can I ask you something? When did it become OK to advertise for breast enhancement surgery on the radio. They have been playing commercials for some surgery center for the past few weeks and each time I hear them I think "isn't this a family station?" Just imagine little Johnny "mommy, why did that man say his wife looks so much better after she got her enhancement" cause you bet your bottom dollar they have some dude on there saying "my wife looks great and she has so much more confidence." NIIICE.

In other news, tomorrow is finally Friday. And, best of all, payday. Sweet Potato Pie, it might be the best day ever. Even better than the day the 10 glue sticks I ordered finally arrived. You wouldn't believe it, but there wasn't ONE glue stick left in my building by the time those babies arrived. Believe me, I checked. Sure I could have busted over to the ol' Dollar General and get some on my own, but that would be like, um, work.

More Quotes

So many good Sophia quotes, I just can't stop!

Blanche: Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to take a long, hot steamy bath with just enough water to barely cover my perky bosom.
Sophia: You're only going to lay in an inch of water?
Rose: Dorothy, you're the smart one, and Blanche, you're the sexy one, and Sophia, you're the old one, and I'm the nice one. Everybody always likes me.
Sophia: The old one isn't so crazy about you.
Blanche: Before my mama sent me off to beauty camp, I was a pencil-thin, flat-chested, four-eyed nerd!
Sophia: I don't believe it. You, pencil-thin?
Dorothy: Why can't you sleep on the couch and give Clayton and Doug your room?
Blanche: Are you crazy, what will the neighbors think if they see two men in my bedroom?
Sophia: They'll think it's Tuesday.
Sophia: I can't believe it. Esther Weinstock is dead.
Dorothy: Oh I'm so sorry Ma, How'd it happen?
Sophoe: She was fighting an oil rig fire in the Gulf of Mexico.
Blanche: I cannot believe they lost all our luggage! Now I have to go an entire weekend without underwear!
Sophia: Yeah. You usually slip into a pair by Sunday afternoon.
Rose: Sit down, Sophia. You must be exhausted.
Sophia: Why? I rode in the cab, I didn't push it!
Ribs, great... why don't you just kick the dentures out of my mouth?
I'm going into the kitchen to fix us a mess-a-sumthin'. That's it - a mess-a-sumthin'.
It was a retirement home, and you know what they did? They set off the fire alarm, in a retirement home. Who can rush? Half the people have walkers, the other half can't get out of their chairs. But they've got bells going off like crazy! You know what that does to hearts that only beat a few times a week? It's not pretty!

Paddle Boats!

My friend just wrote this to me about his daughter. The name has been changed to protect the innocent.

"We went on a paddleboat when we went camping. Brenda was dead weight, she didn't paddle her share. I told her no marshmallows for her!"

His daugther is four.

I'm LMAO over here.

And yes, of course he's kidding!

Sad Day

I learned yesterday that Estelle Getty passed away. Of course I was shocked, then I thought about it and was like "she was 84, what was I expecting." Damn she was funny on the Golden Girls.

I thought I'd put some of my favorite lines here:

Dorothy: Well Blanche is certainly taking her sister's novel better than I would. I would kill my sister Gloria if she ever wrote about my sex life.
Sophia: You would kill your sister over a pamphlet?
Blanche: I have writer's block. It's the worst feeling in the world.
Sophia: Try ten days without a bowel movement sometime.
"Picture it, Sicily..."
"Hey Puh-feiffer, how would you like a punch in your puh-face?"
"Beat it, you 50-year-old mattress! "
"Fasten your seatbelt, slut puppy. This ain't gonna be no cakewalk!"
"Ah yes all my kids make the right choices. My son was a cross dresser and my daughter was unmarried and knocked up. Hell, I was the Rose Kennedy of Brooklyn"
"I lived eighty, eighty-one years, I survived two world wars, pneumonia, a stroke and two operations. One night I'll belch, and Stable Mabel here will blow my head off!"

Random Thoughts for the Day

So I've been reading more and more about this new 90210 series they are developing. I don't know how many of you know this, but I'm addicted to the reruns on Soapnet. They show them each day at 5 & 6 and just recently they showed Brandon's last episode (Brandon Leaves) and Valerie just left too and now they have Matt (monkey lawyer who Kelly of course bangs after 5 episodes) and Gina (Donna's bitchy ice-dancing cousin) as regular cast members. Oh, and what's with that Noah? I think they just had to find someone good looking and pray that he could read, which I'm assuming he could cause he always says his lines. But dude, he brought jack to that show and he had so much baggage. Thank God Dylan came back just as Brandon left, otherwise all hell would have broken loose. Steve can't carry the show by himself and lord KNOWS Kelly isn't any good, she's too busy worrying about herself and her feelings and how people treat her. Anyway, they also show them on Saturday mornings and on those episodes Dylan just left after his wife got killed, and Donna is dating Joe Bradley who is getting sued by Ray Pruitt cause he busted him all up in an altercation on Halloween. What did Donna expect in those tight, short skirts?

Anyway, in my humble opinion, you can't have a new 90210 without Brandon. Come on, he started it all out, and he stuck with it through the good times and bad (well, almost, sure he left shortly after the start of season 9 but come on, he got off that sinking ship just in time.) So I say they have to bring him back, but who is signed on? Kelly (Jennie Garth) and Donna (Tori Spelling.) WTF?? What are they going to contribute? Is Donna going to teach the kids at West Beverly about how she designs ass ugly clothes for stick figures? And Kelly, well she went to school for psychology and started out working at a free clinic, but then went to work at the store where Donna sold her shitty clothes. What is she going to teach the kids, how to be a tramp? How to sleep with every guy you come across but then act self righteous when anyone else does the same thing? I guess so!

One good thing about these reruns - some of them I had missed and some I had forgotten about so now seeing them again, ahh, sweet potato pie. One of my recent faves was when Dylan announced that he was getting married to Toni (daughter of the man who killed his father) and Kelly was all "I can't believe you just blurted it out like that, didn't you consider my feelings," when just weeks earlier she had told Dylan she couldn't go around the world with him (or marry Brandon) cause she "chose me," and went off to NYC to model for the summer (cause that would happen.) Then she busts back to Beverly Hills with Colin, the crappy-ass, coke addicted, sleeping with his agent, artist in tow. You're too good for her Brandon! Kelly, of all the TV characters who it's easy to hate, you are the easiest (in more ways than one!)

Ask my man, he'll tell you, I crab about her all the time. It's almost as if I really know them. I wonder if I was ever in California and ran into her I'd say "hey tramp, Brandon was too good for you!"

In other Random News - what's with the humidity? Our R2-D2 air conditioning has been working for a month with no problem, then all of a sudden it was on "full" last night so we had to empty the water out. No problem, right? Then this morning it says "full" again. I'm like "huh?? could that much water be in it?" Pauline says yes cause it's that humid. I say NOOOO. Well I'm wrong cause after emptying it at 10 this morning, the thing said FULL again at dinnertime. I'm starting to think we'll be waking up in the middle of the night to empty it. And yesterday Don Paul said the humidity was 69 percent. My AC begs to differ!

Eddie Veddar = Crazy Pants

So Monday morning I was watching the VH1 Jump Start and they were showing the video for Jeremy. I hadn't seen it in years, I'm thinking over 10. In any case, they show a bunch of Eddie singing and in each shot his eyes are as big as saucers and he's making wierd hand motions and then when his eyes aren't as big as saucers they are looking up in the air or off to the side or he's singing but his teeth are all clenched and shit. You know what I'm talking about! So I'm thinking back and I'm wondering when the video came out, did people think Eddie was crazy pants and just ignored it, or did they just think he was some musical genius and since he was from Seattle it was OK to be looking like that (crazy) or maybe that was the norm back then. Cause I can't remember, cause in 1993 I was busy worrying about who was going to get the lead in the school play and how to work the cash register at the Filene's Basement.

Yeah you know he's crazy.

Did I ever tell you that Pearl Jam opened for U2 back in the day? Why yes, they did! They opened for them in 1992 when U2 was on the Outdoor European Leg of the ZooTV tour. Ahh Sweet Yesteryears when the Italians were like "Who the eff are these young whipper snappers?" And then they booed!

That's It - I'm Driving

I just read an article on the Business First Daily Update entitled:

US Air cuts out the snacks

Unbelievable. Taking away the peanuts and mini bags of pretzels cause of high gas costs? Does this mean you still get a free drink? It did not specify.

I'll be doing all my traveling via Motor Car in the future. Or via two feet and a heartbeat. Or maybe I'm just not going to go anywhere cause I'm on the fixed income.

Anyway, can you believe this? What's next - no co-pilot? Or maybe they'll just go around the plane and collect 10 bucks from each passenger before the plane will take off.....

Last Comic Standing

So tonight was the return of Last Comic Standing on NBC. Paul and I watched it last summer and thought we'd give it another whirl.

Note to self: You know it's going to be bad when the Talent Scouts are funnier than the comics, and the Talent Scouts don't even talk that much. Thank God Belzer (AKA Munch from Law and Order SVU) was there for the round in NYC. The beginning was just got a bit better when they went to the showcase, but not much. And they only let five people move on in that round. Four of them were what I deemed OK, the other girl, well, Paul farted and it was funnier than she was. I gave up when they went to Tempe, Arizona and came online.

What a dissapointment.

So next week Thursday is the finale of Lost. After that all the TV shows will be done and Lord knows I'm not sticking with LCS. What the hell is a girl to do, read a book or something? GEESH. I might as well go clean in my basement. Good grief.

News From the Parking Lot

Yesterday while I was walking into Wegmans I overheard a conversation between two of the fine "helping hands" associated.

Cart Boy 1: "Dude, would you rather get hit by a car, or shot."

Me: (in my head) "WTF?"

You're MY Top GUN

Seriously, who has the stones to wear this?

Dustin Diamond. Still an Asshole

So I've been watching that Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp on VH1. Same premise as CFC, but they meet on weekends at a "camp" and they stay overnight. So I see this season that Dustin Diamond is back. I can't figure it out because last season he was miserable and he kept leaving, then finally his whole team wouldn't talk to him. In any case, he's back and pledging his allegiance to the team and pledging to work hard. Of course Harvey doesn't believe it. With good reason. Effing Screech is up to his same crap, pulling muscles in his legs, back, neck, arms, anywhere he has them. Falling on the ground saying he can't breathe, and then complaining verbosely when anyone points it out to him "don't attack me, don't attack me." I must have missed it, but Harvey said something to him about Jewish people and Dustin was calling his attorneys and threatening to shut down production because Harvey committed a federal crime. On Sunday's episode he pussed out again on a challenge and didn't participate in a portion of the workout cause "he was winded." So Harvey gets on his case and oh, guess what? Back on the phone with his "manager," who is also his girlfriend (see, he can only get laid by paying someone.) He goes and weighs in, him and Harvey get into a fight (well really Harvey just bitched at him with good reason) and Dustin leaves and calls the "manager" to say he's done, he's leaving.

Previews for next week show Dustin is back. Wanna know why?

Screech got no money
Screech got no job
Screech need to pay his manager somehow, so he needs to stick it out (or he'll lose his job. And his lady.)

Jive ass fool ain't got no brains anyhow.

In other news, Bret Michael's picked his Rock of Love - Ambre - on Sunday night's finale. I insisted from the very beginning that Ambre (normally pronounced AM-BER but pronounced by Lori as OHMM-BRAY), was older than she was letting on, and sure enough, I was right. Who cares though, at least Bret can have a conversation with her without getting punched in the eye. That Daisy couldn't keep her hands still when she was talking, it was like she was a freaking mime or something.

Tonight is the big finale of "The Biggest Loser." Someone directed me to a Blog that had a Q&A with Dan on it and then it had comments. Seems I'm not the only one who thought that asshole was a cocky son-of-a-bitch. But some people blame the "other blue team members for being bad influences." He's 21 years old - and responsible for his own actions. No one made him make the statements that he's smarter than everyone else at the ranch, stronger than all the girls, etc. etc. Anyway, he could come back tonight and lost 200 lbs and it wouldn't change the fact that he's a very large piece of shit. I voted for Mark to go to the finale cause I'm hoping a girl will win. How much you wanna bet if Mark wins America's Vote he'll start crying? Any takers?

The Biggest Losers. Seriously - Losers

OK OK, so I'm addicted to the Biggest Loser, I'll admit it. But could they have recruited a bigger bunch of babies than they recruited this season? Each week the people are crying their eyes out over this, that, the other thing. I gained a pound, wah wah wah, I lost 5 lbs, wail wail wail, I can't believe I lost 80 lbs, I'm going to start sobbing like a little bitch with a skinned knee. And it's not the woman. Oh, no my friend, it's the MEN! Prompting my friend to write to me this morning with "Ok, enough of the crying guys on that show...It's getting painful to watch."

I couldn't agree more, except I thought it was painful four weeks ago when that whole "PRIDE ON 3" BS started up. WTF? Do they know how stupid they look?

Do you think Dan has any clue that he's the biggest wanker this side of the International Dateline (AKA the entire world)???

Do the American viewers know that him standing next to Allison (the hostess) was probably the closest he's ever gotten to a human breast?

Does anyone else see the resemblance to Chris Griffin from Family Guy?

And Mark, what a GD Baby! Seriously, I'm surprised his brother didn't bring along a pack of Pampers for that hairy backed Mary. I don't think he can do a workout, fill his water bottle, take a walk or make a phone call without busting out in tears. Buck up dude. Did you lose your balls when you lost the 100 lbs? Or is your wife carrying them in her purse????

Now Where Could I Wear This?

Move Over Bacon

So today JB and I got on the subject of Sizzlean. You know Sizzlean, the Reduced-Fat Sugar-Cured Beef Bacon Substitute Breakfast Strips. The one with the Motto, move over bacon, now there's something leaner?

Clearly, JB is excited about Sizzlean, as he had this to say.

"Whenever my mom slapped that stuff down in front of me on Saturday morning, I was like, 'Shit yo, moms, did we hit the fuckin’ Powerball?'"

I never knew Sizzlean was that expensive. Or maybe Jeff was that poor. Teehee

Jack Russell

A wealthy old Gentleman decides to go on a hunting safari in Africa , taking his faithful, elderly Jack Russell named Killer, along for the company.

One day the old Jack Russell starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he's lost. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

The old Jack Russell thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!" Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the old Jack Russell exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder, if there are any more around here?"

Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", says the leopard, "That was close! That old Jack Russell nearly had me!"

Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So, off he goes, but the old Jack Russell sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that somet hing must be up.

The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.

The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!

Now, the old Jack Russell sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old Jack Russell says...

"Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard !

Moral of this story...
Don't mess with the old dogs... Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery! BS and brilliance only come with age and experience.

What's with her?

Not much going on today, but I was watching CNN before and thinking "what in the hell is with that Ann Coulter?" Every time that harpie opens her mouth, mine falls to the table in disbelief of what she says. Someone please tell me - what's up with her??? What exactly does she want, besides Ronald Reagan back in office?

In other news - the U2 3D movie is now open across the country. Except here, when it opens February 22 at the Regal Transit Imax. I will be there on the 22nd with bells on. Don't know about U2 in 3D you say? Why click here for more information! I am wondering if the 3D glasses they give you are going to resemble Bono's Fly Shades from the ZooTV tour. A girl can dream can't she?

Lost is on tonight - very exciting. And Survivor, which at least fills 30 minutes before Lost starts.

Oh Oh - very exciting - Jane Fond dropped the C-Bomb on the Today Show. I'm sad to say I didn't see Meredith Viera's reaction, but I bet it was quite a delight to watch once the camera's stopped rolling. Meredith came on a half hour later to apologize to viewers for the offensive word. I bet Matt Lauer is PISSED that he had off today for his laryngitis. That's like the time I was on vacation and I came back and they had shit canned one of the VPs. Boy was I mad to have missed it. I got over it once I got a bigger office out of the deal though.

Dumbest. Women. Ever

So I was listening to the radio this morning. A station I don't normally listen to, but one that I flicked on cause I was flipping through. I won't say the station, nor will I say the DJs names, but here is a clue. There are three people on this station's morning show, two boys and one girl. The girl has been on a LOOOONG time. The boys, not so long, but long enough. One boy left and then came back after a one year absense. That boy is OK. The one boy is the biggest idiot you'd ever meet and he acts like he's the second coming of Christ when you are out at an event and he's "DJing." Anyway, here is how their conversation went.

Girl on Radio: "Has Barack chosen his running mate?"
Me: "No you effing jackass because the primaries aren't over, so unless Hillary drops out he can't choose a running mate yet. You are a member of the "media," shouldn't you know this?" (This is in my head of course.)
Guy on Radio: "Um, no, not yet."
Girl on Radio: "Oh, I just think it would be so cool if he chose Oprah and then she'd be the vice president, she'd do such a great job."
Me: (In head again.) "OMG did that effing idiot just say what I think she said?"
Guy on Radio: "Um, yeah, OK."

At this point it gets fuzzy because I was so flabbergasted thinking "that woman neesd to have her arms ripped off and to be beaten wtih the bloody stumps because she is so god-damned stupid."

How in the name of God's green earth would someone deduce that Oprah's years on Television have made her qualified her to be the 2nd in Command of the COUNTRY??? Now if this asshole had said "Oh, it would be cool for Oprah to run for Mayor" I'd be like Yeah, go nutz, run for Mayor, run Chicago. Or even Governor, which is a stretch. But VP? WTF dude, VP? When will people get out of Oprah's ass?

I'm supposing if Oprah would be a great VP, then Geraldo Rivera would do a bang up job as Secretary of State. And Sally Jessy - she seems smart, let's make her Secretary of Education. And I know Alec Baldwin is good at fighting, maybe he can be the US Attorney General. Forget experience and credentials - it's all about STAR POWER!

My point is this. If you are in the media, think before you open your mouth. Have some facts to back up your stupid ass thoughts before they come out.....
